Horticulture is the art and science of growing fruits, flowers, and vegetables. Humans and horticulture are closely tied! People from all cultures of the world have practiced horticulture methods for thousands of years. This program focuses on the science behind Iroquois garden methods, exploring the foods, customs, and stories that evolved from the planting of corn, beans, and squash—the Three Sisters!
   An adult must attend with each group of girls.
   This program will bring alive the Daisy “Between Earth and Sky” and the Senior “Sow What?” journeys from the It's Your Planet—Love It! series. This program could also supplement the Junior “Gardener” badge.
